US President Donald Trump will start the official program of his second official visit to Europe on Thursday, during which he will attend the G20 summit and meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The first visit in May was marked by Donald Trump’s insistence on increasing allies’ contributions to the NATO budget.

In the Polish capital, where he landed Wednesday night, the US president’s program includes a meeting with Polish counterpart Andrzej Duda, followed by a press conference.

In Warsaw, Trump will also attend a summit of 12 countries in Central and Eastern Europe, and address the Poles in central Krasinski Square, symbolic site that houses the monument to the insurrection of the population of the Polish capital during the Nazi occupation.

From Warsaw, Trump travels in the afternoon to Hamburg, northern Germany, where he attends the G20 summit on Friday and, on the fringes of the G20, meets with his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin.

In addition to the Russian president, Donald Trump will meet with at least nine other foreign leaders, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel, on the sidelines of the summit of industrialized and emerging countries.
